Harvard confirms that fluoride lowers children's IQ

A recently published Harvard University study, which was funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), concluded that children living in areas with high levels of fluoride in their water have "significantly lower" IQs than those living in with low levels of fluoride.
In a 32-page report that can be downloaded for free from Environmental Health Perspectives, the researchers wrote:
“A recent report from the US National Research Council. (NRC 2006) concluded that the adverse effects of high fluoride concentrations in drinking water may no longer be of concern and that further research is warranted.
Fluoride can cause neurotoxicity in laboratory animals, including effects on learning and memory…
In order to summarize the available literature, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies on exposure to elevated fluoride in drinking water in relation to neurodevelopmental delays.
In particular, we targeted studies that were conducted in rural areas of China, which are not widespread, thus complementing the studies that have been included in previous reviews and risk assessment reports.
Findings from meta-analyses of 27 studies published over a 22-year period show an inverse association between high fluoride exposure and children's intelligence... The results suggest that fluoride may be a developmental neurotoxicant that affects brain development. »
Research has repeatedly linked fluoride to reduced IQ and brain damage
There are so many scientific studies demonstrating the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body that it is remarkable that it has not been considered a scientific consensus until now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is added to 70% of US public drinking water supplies.
It is surprising that the medical (and dental) communities so stubbornly refuse to connect the dots when it comes to the skyrocketing increase in cognitive decline in adults and behavioral issues in children (ADD, ADHD, depression and learning disabilities all of species).
In fact, there have been over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage. Fluoride can also increase manganese absorption, exacerbating problems, since manganese in drinking water has also been linked to lower IQ in children.
Reported effects of fluoride on your brain include:
Decrease in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
Damage to the hippocampus of the brain.
β-amyloid plaque formation (the classic brain abnormality of Alzheimer's disease).
Reduction in lipid content.
Purkinje cell lesions.
Aggravation of lesions caused by iodine deficiency.
Weakening of antioxidant defense systems.
Increased aluminum intake.
Fluoride accumulation in the pineal gland associated with cognition.

Harvard confirms that fluoride lowers children's IQ
Fluoride is the only drug that is given uncontrollably to the population without dosage control.
The two most common types of fluoride in drinking water are sodium silicofluoride and fluorosilicic acid, which are waste products from the liquid treatment systems of the fertilizer industry and are considered hazardous waste.
Over 23 human studies and 100 animal studies link fluoride to brain damage.
50% of the ingested fluoride is deposited in the bones of children while only about 10% is stored in adults.
41% of children in the US have dental fluorosis caused by excess fluoride, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
99% of the total fluoride goes from the pipeline straight into the environment.
The harmful effects of fluoride have been known for half a century
What is perhaps most surprising is that the harmful effects of fluoride have been known by conventional medical organizations for over half a century.
Studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including the following:
Increased lead absorption.
Disorder of collagen synthesis.
Hyperactivity and/or lethargy.
Muscle disorders.
Thyroid disease.
Bone fractures.
Decreased thyroid function.
Bone cancer.
Inactivation of 62 enzymes and inhibition of more than 100.
Inhibition of antibody formation.
Genetic damage and cell death.
Increased rate of tumor and cancer.
Immune system disorder.
Damage to sperm and increased infertility.
Fluoride is linked to cancer
Long-lost research linking fluoride to cancer has resurfaced in a Dutch film clip featuring Dr. Dean Burk, who in 1937 was one of the founders of the National Cancer Institute in the USA. and head of the cytochemistry department for more than 30 years.
In the taped interview, he says water fluoridation is tantamount to public murder, citing a study of the 10 largest US cities. with water fluoridation compared to the 10 largest without. The study showed that cancer deaths rose sharply within just a year or two after water fluoridation began.
This and other studies linking fluoride to cancer were commissioned by the government but quickly "buried" when fluoride was found to be linked to dramatic increases in cancers.
